Presentation binding, presentation copy to the Romanian government-in-exile ambassador

Tenth edition, presentation issue, inscribed by the author on the first blank: "To Monsieur V. V. Tilea With best wishes from Winston S. Churchill 1946". The recipient Viorel Virgil Tilea (1896-1972) was the Romanian Government-in-exile's representative in London during the war, making this a particularly appropriate volume to have been presented at the end of the conflict, since a number of the speeches herein are concerned with the Allied conquest of Romania.

The tenth edition of the book, published two years following the first in 1941, was the first edition to have a presentation issue, with a small number of copies bound in ths deluxe morocco binding. Churchill inscribed various copies over the years; even uninscribed, the presentation issue is rare.
